I really recommend Nourishing Traditions! This book changed my life. It would be important also ( as N.T. will explain) to soak grains at least 8 hours before cooking them. This releases the potentially harmful phytic acid, which bonds to minerals in our digestive track and actually pulls them out of the body ( among other things)! It also helps begin the process of breaking down the other hard to digest parts of the grain. Very important for grown-ups and babies! This does mean some careful planning of meals, but its worth it! I read that even the Quaker Oats packages recommended soaking the oats overnight until the 50's microwave revolution! We've unlearned to much about nutrition in just a few generations!
